Dalmer/Firus had a great partnership, and it was sad to see that one end, even though I think it was necessary. When one has had a great partnership, it is sometimes difficult to find that connection again. But I hope he does try. He has great potential. Maybe it means changing the venue entirely, if nothing can be found close to home. Perhaps there is a lovely young lady of a size similar to Marie-France Dubreuil in Quebec? Or even someone in the international community who wouldn't mind making/has already made a skating home in North America somewhere? It's worth the effort if his passion for skating is still there, and the attractions of a normal life haven't taken over.
